thread 28 Threaded Spouts
Let’s see if I can actually make a thread. My last one, that I will revisit, was not done correctly. I’m not an IT expert… oh, wait… yes I am.

To set the stage… It was 1999, coastal SC, and my GF and I had just moved back to the area. Her parents were working comedy on a cruise ship in the Bahamas.

How in the actual hell did the USPS lose $6.5 Billion in the last fiscal year?

I could understand losses in the Millions…

Just saw an article about a girl in NYC that went viral for a TikTok. She was crying about having to apply for a minimum wage job after getting two degrees from college.

I’m sorry, but…. No.

I’m an expert IT guy, and I’ll still wait tables or wash dishes if I have to.

That’s called life.

What remains of the GOP, as we once knew it, is dead and gone.

Even Dems want action over the southern border situation, but the GOP doesn’t want to fix anything because they’re using it as a talking point.

It’s just sad that they’re so beholden to a narcissistic infant.

And then wash my hands?

I scheduled a prostate exam and a vasectomy on the same day.

I’m not sure what my doctor will do first… I think he’s a sadist!

One of my favorite songs, by one of my favorite bands, from the soundtrack of one of my favorite movies.

Violent Femmes - Color Me Once [5-15-94] - YouTube

[Stereo feed] Live in a television studio. A bit dark, but that is how they usually filmed the sets, in those days.

Life is always funny.

If you cannot see the humor in everything around you, then maybe you need to lighten up a bit?

Trust me, it can always get worse.

So make the best of it while you still can.

Getting settled into the new home in Denver. All my family, except for me, are dealing with altitude sickness.

I’ve had an ear infection since November and am still on anti-biotics, so maybe that curse is a blessing?

I also smoke and drink beer like a fish…. Go figure!

For the last 6 years, my family of 4 has lived with ONE bathroom. We made it work, but…

I cannot tell you how amazing it is to now have 2.5 bathrooms.

Happy Winter Solstice everybody!!

Enjoy the longest night of the year, and revel in the darkness it brings.

Within that dark, your love will shine the brightest to those that need it.

Today was my last day at work, because I’m moving to another state. I’ve never been at a job this long… almost 7 years!

The next chapter better be just a little more fun. The grass isn’t greener, just doing what I gotta do.

I read that some teenage boys decided to use AI to create “naked” pictures of female classmates.

I don’t understand the point. It’s not real, but it still harms the girl because boys are dumb enough to think the fantasy is real.

Those boys need to be slapped stupid, and told they ain’t getting it.

A mass shooting in Maine…

The guy targeted ordinary people enjoying a night of bowling.

I can’t wait to hear the “thoughts and prayers” from the jackasses in government.

You know, the people that get 24/7 armed protection that WE pay for?

And they praise some god?

The mushroom update…

I took 750mg and got nothing. I added a small-ish mushroom onto that, and still nothing.

Mind you, I’m all of 5’10” and 160lbs, so this should’ve been enough.

Am I just immune to psilocybin?

Still chasing that elusive trip…

A couple years ago I got Lasik surgery. At 48 years of age, I finally got perfect vision after 38+ years of dealing with changing prescriptions, and untold out of pocket costs.

Insurance didn’t cover a dime of it. $7000 out of pocket, after years of $100-300 every six months or so of new lenses.

I read a lot of news from aggregate sources. When I see certain “news articles”, I like to check the byline.

“Story by” is similar to “based on a true story”. It’s what writers use to protect themselves from litigation when exaggerating the truth to suit a narrative.

I upped my dose to 500mg. That’s supposed to be a macro dose.

Nada.

Still searching for that elusive trip!

I’m on a mission to mushroom.

Last night I tried a pill, 250mg, and got nothing.

Next time, 500mg.

Why am I trying?

Because my brain needs a kick start. I’m not well mentally. I’m stuck in a quagmire of the same old same old and have no idea how to be myself again!

My life in a nutshell…

Decided to finally take a magic mushroom that I’ve had for a couple months.

I didn’t take a trip, but had the runs.

Until it happens to you, to someone you love…

Until you actually experience it, go through the fire of it….

Don’t judge. Don’t say what you would’ve done.

Because you haven’t had to do it.

Be supportive. Try to understand.

Learn empathy. Embrace caring.

Breaking Bad is one of the greatest dramas ever made.

I bailed on Only Murders in the Building after 2-3 eps. Just didn’t mesh with it.
Jacqueline @JustJacque
How about a more lowbrow version. What critically acclaimed series have you tried watching and bailed on? Or have never even tried watching?

I’ve never watched an episode of Breaking Bad.

Here’s a strange thought…

We’re all obsessed with sex.

Sex for money, gratification, conquest, control, power, violence… and love?

Why is it so taboo to discuss it?

I would love to be able to discuss fucking, and sucking, and everything in between, without feeling ashamed about it.
